that this has been too much information provided by the obama administration. how have officials you have spoken to responded to that charge? theer: is difficult, criticism. i think it is hard to find merit with a lot of this criticism. the state department, since the lockerbie bombing, the pan am bombing in 1988, has been operating under a no double standards rule, meaning that goes tonformation that official american employees and diplomats serving abroad needs to be or has to be shared with the american public. if they have a specifically credible threat that can close an embassy, they are required to share it with the public. meritot really see much in the criticism. i know that some people have been complaining that the amount of specificity and the location identification of the closed embassies may have tipped off or did tipoff potential attackers and may have alerted them to how their communications were intercepted or compromised, but i think that in the interest of safety in, official americans and private americans were traveling, the state department is operating with an abundance of

a very strong political taint. if you wouldn't say obama is weak, you know why he is weak, it is not because of failure to act. it is because 80% of the american people think he shouldn't act. >> you were on this panel on special report this week saying the president can't operate by polls. >> correct. >> is this president operating by polls? >> i don't think there is any question that he's responding to polls and responding to people within his own party. he is responding to manchin, carl levin. responding to libertarians like rand paul who oppose it. she not listening to john kerry, he is not listening to john mccain. they are hard line and they want him to go and go now. >> the time he should have been listening is before he made the announcement we have to act. before kerry said in front of the world the word of america is at stake. before the entire administration leaked the plan to explain exactly were it had to act. right now we are way beyond the other arguments, we are way beyond the polls. way beyond the issues, is this the best way to attack. i this it is not. t
